Full-Color Print-On-Demand System Helps Print Service Providers Expand Business
TOKYO, December 4, 2008 — Targeting printing companies, service bureaus and data centers, Fuji Xerox Co. Ltd. will launch a full-color print-on-demand system offering high levels of quality and productivity. Sales of Xerox iGen4TM Press will commence on January 24, 2009.
Xerox iGen4TM Press
Xerox iGen4TM Press features newly-developed technologies and more than 400 new components. It has achieved a marked improvement in color quality over the preceding model, Xerox iGen3® 110 Digital Production Press, offering smooth color reproduction and uniform tone right across the printed surface and between print jobs. This enhanced color quality will enable the system to be used for a wider range of print applications.
In addition, the system automates pre-print processes including color checks, calibration and profile creation, which operators previously carried out by hand. Thus, it achieves higher productivity across all tasks, from pre-print checks to output and day-to-day maintenance.
On-demand printing is growing in popularity as companies expand one-to-one marketing and product life cycles shrink. At the same time, print service clients are making more rigorous demands in terms of quality, cost reduction, delivery deadlines and added value.
Newly developed Xerox iGen4TM Press, which heads Fuji Xerox lineup of color cut-sheet production printers, responds to customers’ calls for even higher levels of quality and productivity along with these changes in the market environment.
Used in conjunction with the FreeFlow Digital Workflow Collection, a portfolio of tools that raise print service productivity by improving the printing environment and streamlining print workflow, this system will create new business opportunities encompassing various forms of direct mail, catalogs, photo albums, text, promotional collaterals as well as transpromotion (combining advertising with transactional material such as invoices).
As a pioneer in production printing, Fuji Xerox will continue to contribute to customers’ business expansion by strengthening its product line-up.
